Peyton Evans was inside an apartment on Brightseat Road in Landover last Tuesday when a vehicle pulled up and a gunman opened fire. His mother told FOX 5 that he had just finished playing football and was playing videos games when he was struck by the gunfire. He was transported to the hospital and died later that night. Investigators say he was not the shooter's target.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 888-ATF-TIPS or 866-411-TIPS.
